Method Park again sponsors ASQF Advancement Prize
Method Park is sponsor of the ASQF Advancement Prize for the second time. For its personnel policy, the company from Erlangen places particular emphasis on the promotion of young and talented career entrants in the research and science fields.
The prize is awarded to a graduate of the winter semester 2016/17 who studied computer sciences at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Chair for computer science 4 – distributed systems and operating systems). Michael Eischer received an A (1.0) for his final paper, in which he dealt with the development of a Byzantine and error-tolerant protocol for heterogeneous environments.
Christian Wawersich, deputy Team Leader and Senior Software Engineer at Method Park, will award the prize of 500 euros to Michael Eischer today. This will be at the graduation celebration of the faculty of engineering in the “Audimax” lecture hall of the university in Erlangen.
Starting in 2002, the German Association for Software Quality and Further Education ASQF awards this prize once a semester. This is for outstanding performance during studies, short periods of studying resulting in graduation and final papers, in which practical relevance and software quality are the focus. Cooperation partners are the FU Berlin, FH Brandenburg, BTU Cottbus, TU Munich, FH Nuremberg and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
